I always used to see MAC store from a distance but never had the courage to enter it. But one fine day, I just had to enter the store. And I was so mesmerised by their collection! I bought a Studio Fix plus foundation, Studio Moisture Cover concealer, a lipgloss, a lippy and Prep and prime.
My MAC Taupe Lipstick Journey
This is my first and only one lipstick from MAC. I had no idea about how many types they have in lippies and blah blah blah, I just told the MUA(who was a sweet person and didn’t let me feel awkward which I had expected) that I have a budget of 6k for my MAC Makeup, please suggest me some basic MAC products. He asked me to try out the base, which I loved instantly. I also wanted to own a MAC lippy, which can be worn for office. That was my idea of paisa-wasool . He gave me this Matte lippy, I got it as if I was receiving a free gift. Later I realised I had got a matte one which I never wear.
But then I decided to try this out for office and got quite a few compliments, I was always under the impression that matte shades make u look older and what not. But when I received lovely compliments for my lippies, I fell in love with my MAC lipstick! I have been following blogs lately but never got to see this name L, but does that matter? I like this lipstick a lot and it has made me like matte lipsticks a lot.
Swatches of MAC Taupe Lipstick:-
I always hear that beauties complain that matte lipsticks are very drying but I did not have such experience with this, although my lips hate any product which is even a bit drying. I don’t need to say much coz I always think lipsticks are generally good by all companies and this one is MAC so its too good .
MAC Taupe Lipstick Swatches:-
Coming to the colour, its like a not too brown shade.
I suck at explaining so will show you swatches. It’s a nice shade but it will wash you out if you are dusky. For my NC 42 skin tone, it looks great and it’ll suit even better to wheatish complexion beauties.
Well, I wouldn’t say it’s a must buy shade, you can live without it. And I won’t be repurchasing it again.
What I like about MAC Matte Taupe Lipstick:-
- Doesn’t dry out the lips
- Good number of shades to choose from
- It’s MAC!
- Colour suits me well
- Nice fragrance
- Sturdy packaging
What I do not like about MAC Matte Taupe Lipstick:-
- Not a great shade which would suit everyone
Although the second con is bullshit coz we never buy lippies which would suit everyone! We buy the ones which suit us, but I had to write something! Hope this review helped
